It's a bit funny how things change, the season's, music, fashion, and my desire to edge band. I now am deciding very carefully if I want to even cut a piece on our Techno cnc, as I know what that means..................more edge banding. Tomorrow I have decided that I should let someone more qualified take this task on. And by qualified I mean not me :) Jody should do this. Yeah that's right, give it to Jody. She's gonna loooove me! That poor girl, she's always gettin stuck doing the 'less than super-crazy-awesome' tasks, like sanding, and sanding, oh yeah....sanding. I sound bitter, but I truly am not. I worked Saturday and Sunday on doing some more designing and routering, and figuring out how this will attach to that, etc.
When I lent my services to a collegue who was working on a film about 12 years ago, I was introduced to the world of cnc. I remember watching this huge machining centre milling out a slab of mdf and turning it into a fantastic set of gears. I knew that it would have taken me hours to achieve the same thing with traditional power tools. I decided then that I would invest in a cnc router for my own business Oxenham Design. At that time I could turn on a computer, but even to check email seemed like a crazy set of operations. I persevered and learned every piece of relevant software I could get my hands on. I am now fortunate enough to be using Vectric's ASPIRE software, and Techno cnc routers, which has helped us to create some amazing projects, both in part, or in full. I thought that this blog would be a great place to share "behind the scenes" adventures with the software, materials and equipment we use, as well as the projects we build.
